    No Ionization

    One thing I've learned quickly is that ionization is not the popular opinion! And after reading.... I understand. BUT, when I purchased my package with my pool, my installer was suggesting the ionizer system and he would provide for me. He helped me place my order. Now if I'd like to change...

    Chlorine is at 0

    I was low on salt, so I added it and turned the SWG to 0 last evening and ran the pump all night. This morning, I have 0 chlorine. It was low last night, so it didn't drop from last night. Suggestions? Add bleach, turn SWG to a higher percentage.
